Double Strollers, New Furniture, Starting Over..OH MY! Today it really hit me when we went to Babies R Us to get a gift, and we checked out the newest Graco double stroller that folds up 20% smaller than other double strollers. That was a great feature, but they need to say on the box, "But still weighs a ton!" I tried to lift that thing up and lets just say...I will need to work out my arms..NOW!! I started wheeling it around thinking, "Do they make bathroom stalls big enough for this??" "Does it need signals in the front to tell others where I am headed?" Good gosh...
It looks like it would not be bad here, but it is photographed at a great angle to make it look small. I have to say it is pretty snazzy...although monstrous!
I am still amazed at how I can love Keegan so much, but be every enamored by the small being that is growing in my womb. I started feeling the baby kick last week and I forgot how much I loved this. I am still as much giddy as when I was waiting for Keegan to arrive. I wonder if this baby will look anything like Keegan, if he or she will have as much personality as him, and if he or she will actually like to sleep in. God do you hear my small request? I am looking forward to holding a new baby again, falling asleep with the baby on my chest, and smelling even those new little diapers. I can not wait to smell the Dreft on the tiny clothes and cuddle him or her up in a fresh receiving blanket. Those things I will never get over, even after the second one gets out of that stage.
On Tuesday, we find out what we are having. Hopefully it will be accurate, because if they tell us it a girl... you know that nursery will be decked out with pink very soon!!! But know if it is a boy, we are excited too! Just means the same blue, green and red combo! :) We are praying that the the technician gets the anatomy correct and that the baby is in the right position. I just heard about my friend April in Mansfield, who was told that she was having a boy, just had all over her showers...with a blue theme. At the last ultrasound, they found out they were having a girl who was holding her umbilical cord when they first checked the sex. Goodness...talk about having to reshift your thinking! So everyone...pray for a CLEAR reading! We have names picked out, so we are ready to put a name with the sonogram! WOO-HOO!!
